The days are counting down and Christmas is right around the corner. It seems like the list of things to do at this time of the year is never-ending. We are here to help you with our annual gift guide for tea lovers (and teacup lovers, of course). If you or someone you know loves all things tea, then our 2019 Ultimate Tea Lovers Gift Guide is just what you need to jumpstart your 2019 gift-giving season. We’ve compiled a variety of tea-related gifts for everyone on your list! We’ve narrowed it down to our 10 favorites! And the best thing is, everything is under $50!
1. Cupcakes From Miryame
Ottawa-based baker, Miryame El Gueribi, creates floral-inspired delectable treats! There is no doubt that her cupcakes are gorgeous. There is nothing like a sweet treat to help make tea time just a little bit better. We asked Miryame when she got started and we were surprised to learn that she has been whipping up these artistic wonders for just 4 short years. She is completely self-taught! It all started when she posted photos of cupcakes she had decorated for her daughter’s birthday. The response was overwhelmingly positive response and the rest is history!
2. Eggnog Tea From Tea With Tracie
Professional tea sommelier Tracie Michaud from Oakville, Ontario, offers high-end tea parties and is a self-described as a tea junkie with a passion for vintage teacups. Tracie launched her company in 2018 and offers a great selection of black, green and herbal teas but also offers seasonal flavors like Festive Eggnog, Irish Cream, and Merry & Bright. All of her teas come packaged in plant-based pyramid tea sachets. These make wonderful gifts for co-workers and friends or you know, maybe one of those “from me to me” gifts!
3. Traveler’s Note Book
We know this isn’t what you would think of as a conventional gift for the tea lover on your list but hear us out. Tea lovers like tea and typically buy a lot of it. Sometimes more than we can reasonably drink, but that never stopped anyone. We try all sorts from herbal blends to black teas and everything in between and it can get overwhelming. These little notebooks offer a great way to document your tea journey. Keep track of which tea and when you bought it, what you like about it and maybe what you didn’t like about it.
Traditionally used by paper crafters to document trips and special events, travelers notebooks are compact enough to be carried around without being cumbersome. The space allows for notetaking and creativity. We especially like these by Webster’s Pages and they make great stocking stuffers. The inserts come in fun colors and patterns and are under $10. The binders to hold the notebooks plus space for pens and cards and are under $25.

4. Teatime Magazine
The magazine itself is wonderful. We recommend a subscription to anyone who enjoys afternoon tea, teacups, and tea. Their special collector’s issues are fantastic and present so many great ideas for entertaining with family and friends!
5. Jam By Crawfordland Jams
Your stocking just got a whole lot sweeter! Crawfordland Jams boasts real fruit and real flavor. We say that is entirely true because we’ve tried them. They are a delightful addition to any scone and are an affordable gift for friends, family, and co-workers. They produced standard flavors like strawberry and raspberry but also extend their offerings to exciting choices like carrot cake and apple toffee. They also offer sugar-free options and wedding favors!
6. Sweet Marvelace Tea Doilies
When you want to up your entertaining game, this is how you do it! Sweet Marvelace tea doilies are intricate sugar doilies that float on your tea and then slowly dissolve to add sweetness. You can even use them to decorate cupcakes and cookies. The doilies come in different shapes and are the perfect addition to an Afternoon Tea with friends. These tuck neatly in a Christmas stocking or even a Christmas card!

8. Royal Albert Tea Canister from the English Tea Store
If you know a tea lover, then you know someone who has a lot of tea. One of the best gifts you can give someone is the ability to store their tea or hide it or make it seem like they have things under control. This tea canister from the Miranda Kerr Friendship Series does all of that.
